Event details

 
“RRI and regional development: common dilemmas, different approaches” is a series of three webinars dealing with the concepts of regional dilemmas and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). The series intend to bring together European territories from 4 different SwafS projects (TeRRItoria, SeeRRI, RRI2SCALE, DigiTeRRI), and each webinar is devoted to a different family of territories which share common regional dilemmas, as well as similar socio-economic and geographic characteristics.
 
EURADA, WeDo and White Research organise these webinars with the aim of sharing the participating territories’ insights on how the same dilemmas are experienced differently and how RRI elements are territorially implemented to overcome them.
 
The first webinar will take place on Friday the 25th of June at 11:00 CET. The topic of this event is “Maritime territories: common dilemmas, different approaches”. 
 
During the event, four territories will be analysed: the Region of Central Macedonia (Greece), Vestland and Nordland (Norwey) and Galicia (Spain). 
 
The moderator of the event will be Esteban Pelayo, director of EURADA.
Each territory will be represented by:   
  • Eleni Pappa - Region of Central Macedonia | Directorate of Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  • Kallitsa Pantazi - Region of Central Macedonia | Directorate of Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  • Beate Bergsholm - Vestland County Council
  • Jens Ørding Hansen - Nordland Research Institute
  • Are Jensen - Nordland Research Institute
  • Manuel París Lestón - Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN)
  • Virginia Vidal Touza - Axencia Galega de Innovación (GAIN)
Three overarching dilemmas will be discussed in relation to territorial Research and Innovation (R&I): (i) how R&I impacts the sustainable use of regional maritime resources, (ii) how R&I affects depopulation and high urbanization levels in the region, and (iii) how maritime territories can advance currently low regional innovation levels that are responsible and inclusive.
